Do you want to lighten your gear load on a wedding day? These two minimalist wedding photographers share what gear they now carry after switching from the typical DSLR.
In their latest edition of “What’s in My Bag,” CreativeLive interviews popular wedding photographers Davina and Daniel Kudish about what gear is essential for them on a wedding day. The first topic discussed is how they brand themselves as being minimalist, storytelling wedding photographers. This is important, as they make the point several times about their gear matching their brand. The silent shutter of the camera, the lens choices, and the camera size all fit in with the minimalist brand they've produced.
The other primary point they discussed was the weight of their cameras. They admit to feeling worn down after carrying multiple bulky DSLRs on long wedding days. The ability to now use the single lighter camera was a big reason for their recent switch to Sony. Another benefit of their camera choice is that its size allows it to be very convenient to carry day to day for things such as personal family moments that they only used their phones for before.
While this isn’t meant to be a promotion of Sony, as I am a Canon shooter myself, I can relate to their issues about size and weight. These two have done a great job of making their gear a selling point for their business, and it has obviously worked well for them.
